Student Prior Knowledge

Since this video just acts as an introduction to the unit, students should not need any prior knowledge of the subject in order to succeed.

Intended Learning Outcomes

After the video, students should have a basic knowledge of what the elements of design are so that in future lecture/discussions they are aware that each topic of discussion is an element of design.

Once the video is over, correct the worksheet as a class, using the discussion time to further introduce the students tot he concept of the elements of design.

Strategies for Diverse Learners

The struggling student could be asked to simply write down the 4 different elements of design that are discussed in the video.
